Polaroid Debuts Line Of Peer-To-Peer Ultra High Zoom Bridge Cameras
Polaroid today launched a new line of ultra high optical zoom Wi-Fi enabled bridge cameras at the 2014 International CES. The built-in Wi-Fi enables instant peer-to-peer sharing of photos and videos—simply connect to your smartphone or tablet and share images and movies from your camera directly with friends, family or social media. The family of easy-to-use cameras feature the optical zoom capabilities designed to fit any need and budget from a 50X optical zoom (iE5036W), 40X (iE4038W), 35X (Ixx353W) and 30X optical zoom (iE3035W).
“Polaroid is the iconic brand that consumers trust to capture and share their precious moments, and with the addition of peer-to-peer Wi-Fi to our new bridge camera line, consumers can now instantly share those moments with all their friends and family,” commented Scott W. Hardy Polaroid President and CEO. “This is what Polaroid is all about and we are going to continue to bring consumers these easy to use, cool innovations that will make their lives more memorable.”
Produced by Sakar International, an authorized Polaroid licensee, all four models deliver ultra high optical zoom capabilities, quality images, and have the ease and convenience of a smartphone, making it fast and simple for everyone to capture outstanding photos with minimal fuss. The 18MP resolution and HD video capability are ideal for recording every precious memory as it happens with legendary Polaroid imaging quality.

Each of the new Polaroid cameras feature a large, bright 3” high-resolution LCD screen to help users set up, preview and review their perfect shot, and built-in image controls allow more advanced users to customize settings to add a creative touch to any photo or high-definition video. A powerful pop-up flash with red-eye reduction provides just the right light for any situation. An SD card slot provides media on-board storage.
